Hello – I’m James Hill, Founder of Prescript Recruitment.

Prescript are medical recruitment specialists.

Every day the team at Prescript help doctors take the next step in their career and assist regional hospitals and practices across Australia with their long-term (permanent) and short-term (locum) vacancies.

We’re known for making for regional communities feel like they have the best doctors in town.

I’ve chosen Australia as my home and I’ve loved getting to know different places - from small towns to larger cities - and exploring the challenges that their health services face. Over the past decade I’ve helped hundreds of doctors relocate from interstate or abroad to help regional Australia move towards being fully staffed with doctors.

The struggles that remote communities face in receiving consistent high-quality healthcare are widely talked about. I’ve travelled to the NT and seen for myself the remote Aboriginal communities that lack healthcare provision. What might surprise you though is that the problem is also much closer to home. Even a short distance outside of Sydney just beyond the Blue Mountains, the doctor shortage is very real. Even our capital struggles to find all the doctors it needs. The point is that this is not just an issue just for those living outside of Sydney or Melbourne, it’s a problem for all of us when we travel across Australia to enjoy regional holidays or visit family and friends.

From countless meetings with doctors, hospitals and practices over the last 10 years we understand that they have three key challenges:

  1. They don’t have the time to add finding a new position or recruiting to their daily tasks.
  2. They struggle to identify the best position or attract the best applicants.
  3. They know that promoting themselves or a vacancy so that it is engaging and relevant takes time yet they want immediate results.

We offer a range of recruitment services that will solve these challenges:

  • Firstly, Prescript’s 7-Step recruitment framework on behalf of doctors, hospitals and practices for permanent positions – putting recruitment on the top of our list and off theirs.
  • Secondly, Prescript’s locum management service – providing immediate support for uncertain or busy times.
  • Thirdly, bespoke retained or exclusive recruitment searches and projects.

We believe that regional Australian hospitals and practices should be fully staffed with doctors so that communities everywhere have the healthcare they deserve. Everything we do is with that in mind. We are committed to helping solve the problem of attracting doctors and get an immense amount of satisfaction from seeing the end result - departments and clinics that run better, have more capacity, improved morale and less stress. We also strive to place doctors where they’ll feel valued and really enjoy what they do.

We also believe that every business has the power to change lives by giving back through its everyday business activities. Each time someone does business with us, something great happens in the world. This is made possible through Prescript’s lifetime partnership with Buy1GIVE1 ( Each time we place a doctor in a position we also contribute towards a doctor’s salary in Odede, Western Kenya so they can continue to provide crucial healthcare to families living in extreme poverty.  Our BIG goal is to pay the salary for an entire year, plus assist with food, clean water and lighting at the Community Health Centre.

You can choose three ways to work with the Prescript team. Talk to us about:

  • Locum and Short-term vacancies
  • Permanent or ongoing positions
  • Bespoke recruitment projects

Prescript is known for helping solve the regional doctor shortage leaving hospitals, practices and local communities feeling like they have the best doctors in town. But we want to help more doctors and more communities – we would love to work with you to achieve this.
